Contribute to Beautiful Music and Promote your Business

Dear Friends of District 99 Orchestra, 
We are very fortunate to live in a community that supports the fine arts. We have a wonderful orchestra program in District 99 that is attended by over one hundred students from Downers Grove and the surrounding areas of Westmont, Woodridge, and Darien. On May 5th, the District will host the Orchestra Banquet at Downers Grove North. The purpose of the banquet is to recognize the amazing work and accomplishments of these students, and honor the graduating seniors. This event is attended by more than two hundred Downers Grove area orchestra students, their families, school administrators and faculty.
A highlight of the banquet is our Gift Basket Auction. These gift baskets are made up of donations from our local businesses and residents. We are asking our local businesses to donate products, gift certificates, vouchers for services, or promotional items (t-shirts, mugs, etc). We will bundle these items together into themed baskets. Your business will be acknowledged in the evening’s program as well as via the Fine Arts Boosters’ websites which are published for the entire Fine Arts community of more than 2000 students and their families in the District 99 area.  
The proceeds of this auction cover expenses that fall outside the regular budget like repairing loaner instruments to keep our program strong for many years to come.
To make a donation or for more details, please contact Brian for pick-up at 331-645-1242 or email fofablog@gmail.com. You can also mail donations directly to Glen Williams, D99 Fine Arts Dept. Chair,   Downers Grove South High School, 1436 Norfolk Street, Downers Grove, IL  60516
Thank you so much for your support!
